Joan Didion's on Going Home- Analysis Essay

...Didion’s essay, “On Going Home” Didion describes her experiences and thoughts on what defines her meaning of home. Didion uses many asyndetons and polysyndetons to emphasize her emotions and poses several rhetorical questions. Throughout the essay, Didion poses an important point that, perhaps her generation is the last to truly know the meaning behind the word “home”. The contributing factors to such conclusion derived from her personal experiences with her direct family (mother, father, and brother), her husband, and even her own daughter. Didion first sets her definition of home by clarifying that to her, home means “not where [her] husband and [she] and the baby live, but the place where [her] family is.” (Didion1) Her diction reflects the way she thinks about her home, with words such as “troublesome” that give off a negative connotation. Although she defines this place as her home, she expresses how she changes personalities and formalities in front of her parents and brother, which her husband is unfamiliar with. This transformation represents her familiarity with her family, whom she grew up with, or her childhood. However, since she is not in her childhood anymore, this familiarity is somewhat uncomfortable to her and her husband, whom Didion is more accustomed with. She, therefore, calls her “home” a “burden” (Didion2) where her source of tension and drama come from. Didion’s relationship with her husband reflects what she left behind at “home”. When Didion visits......

Joan Didion's on Going Home- Analysis Essay Revised

...The Most Expensive Home The door thuds as you close it behind you on your way out to go to school, work, or wherever you are headed. You don’t have a second thought about what you’re leaving behind: your home. But have you ever thought about the significance of that word, “home”? In Joan Didion’s essay, “On Going Home”, Didion describes her experiences and thoughts on what defines her meaning of home. Didion uses many asyndetons and polysyndetons to emphasize her emotions and poses several rhetorical questions. Throughout the essay, it can be concluded that perhaps the generation that truly knows the meaning behind the word “home” is gradually disappearing. The contributing factors to such interpretation derived from Didion’s personal experiences with her direct family, her husband, and even her own daughter.

Coming Back

...Coming Back Nancy Bee Zhao, in her article in The Sun Magazine, describes how her outlook of her life changed after a two month trip to Mexico. When she came home from her extended stay in Mexico she was surprised about how differently she lived than she had in Mexico. Everything was gigantic and seemingly perfect, but it also lacked the liveliness, dancing, and music. Coming home made her realize how differently she lived. “I saw who I was for the first time: rich, secure, naive, American” Zhao explains. My family travels every summer and I have seen quite a bit of the world, but I have alway been sheltered by my parents. The summer of 2007 I took a trip to Turkey to visit family. Before my trip I had never really experienced culture shock before. Life in Turkey was so different from anything I had experienced. The food was amazingly tasty, exploding with exotic flavors. The people and my family were incredibly kind and generous, even if they had nothing. The bazaars were astounding. So many people crowded together under giant canopies with stands overflowing with goods, yelling louder than the next vender to catch your attention. Swarms of people walking around rushing to get their shopping done while the old men sit in the shade drinking their small cups of black tea chatting up a storm. At the outside of the bazaar, beggars call out to the tourists hoping for some spare change. “Coming home was a shock,” Zhao analyzes. Every time I come home from a trip I marvel......

Reflective Essay – International Assignments

...question to be asked is whether the family is also moving abroad or not, depending on the planned length of the assignment. In both cases several issues have to be faced. If the family is also moving, a hard task is to organize everything at home and at the host country, regarding housing, work permits, visa, school for kids, and so forth. When the company of the assignee supports the family as a whole, it can be a lot easier to get over some critical issues as for example housing or school for the kid. The situation for the family members can be helped, when an organization specialized on helping international assignees is considered. The very best advantage of this case is the family can stay together and is not separated for some years. When the wife and kids would stay at home, from my sight of view the relationship could be extremely negative affected. Let us just imagine the international assignment is for about five years and it is far away from the home country, where the possibility for visits is extremely restricted. I would say, the relationship would hardly survive that period of time. The advantage in this case for the assignee would be the re-entry to the home country. As we know things change within years and to have someone at home, especially family, someone can stay in contact with, who...

...In the future, I see tablets taking over the computer in the home, office/work place and in our schools. We can already see some of this taking place now. Testing for the work place and schools is taking place all over our country. In the home, the tablet is becoming more and more dominate. On society as a whole, tablets are saving us time, money and overall making our lives easier. Schools are implementing tablets in students’ lives, making learning easier, saving tax dollars. Students are able to access the internet from where they sit in the class room, instead of wanting on their turn at the computer or going to the library, both are at the touch of their fingers. In the work place, it is saving us time, money and energy. Employees are accessing information/documentation from the office everywhere they go. In the home, the tablets are easing our minds and making our lives easier by the touch of finger. Apps on these tablets are the can help keep our homes and families safer by turning on and off our lights, setting the “forgotten” security system, closing the garage door, turning on security cameras so we can see who is home, (such as our children), if they are supposed to be there or not, and list can go on and on.

Borders

... Borders Since 1790 to 2006, certain immigration policies have been put in place. Most which seem unfair to certain immigrants coming into the U.S., restricting them because of their race, lack of intelligence, or because they just didn’t have the right skills in order to work in the U.S. We will be focusing on 4 immigration policies overall. 2 racial based policies, like the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882. The Chinese Exclusion Act prohibited Chinese immigrants from coming into the U.S. Also along with the Chinese Exclusion Act is the Naturalization Act of 1790. The Naturalization Act of 1790 only really focused on the U.S.’s need to bring in people with “good moral character” because the U.S. wanted to make their nation, to what they believed as “pure”. Also, 2 profession based policies, like the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, which was a law that took away jobs from every single immigrant that was in the U.S. without proper documentation. Also, the Secure Fence Act of 2006 which is a law that allowed for a huge fence to be placed along the U.S.-Mexico border in order to prevent immigrants from Mexico from sneaking into the U.S. Based on these policies the Immigration Policies from 1790 to 2006 were unjustified because they limited certain immigrants from coming into the U.S. The immigration policies from 1790 to 1942 were unjustified because it had prevented certain immigrants from being allowed......

Story

...kept on repeating, "Don't enter! Save Your Soul!" There were vines and plants growing over the haunted house. On a windowsill there was even a fake Chucky. When I started walking up to the door I felt like I was going to explode! I was so freaked out. I started sweating and started to shake. I was there, all alone. I wanted to scream, but it wouldn't come out. I was getting more freaked out by every step. I actually felt like I should turn back and run. But, the haunted house made me feel sort of drawn to it. A bat flew overhead and shrieked "eek!" I went to the doorknob and reached for it. It felt slimy and gooey. I looked and saw it had red stuff on it. I took the red stuff off my hand and then the doorknob. I felt the doorknob and it felt like soft wood. It was a dark maroon color and looked big compared to my little hand. When I opened the door it creaked louder and louder until I finally opened it the whole way. In the inside I smelled something burning. I saw spiders and cobwebs and dust. The light bulb was very dim. I wanted to turn back but I was drawn to it. I walked to the stairs and went up the stairs. I heard a washing machine somewhere. Every time I took a step the floor creaked. I heard owls, bats, and mice when I went up the stairs. All of a sudden, a zombie jumped in front of me. She took off the mask and my friend asked "Hey!

Interview

...with past surveys, almost 11 percent of the youths said they were homeless and living on the streets before coming to shelters.”-www.liftingtheveil.org Interview I have known Daniel Simmons since I was a first year student in high school, in the town of Corona, CA. He’s a tall (about 6’3”, he revealed), slightly overweight, Mexican-American wearing black, horn-rimmed glasses, jeans, and a red and blue Aeropostale shirt, with his washed out, green Army style jacket strung across the back of his chair. Diet Coke and crepe sitting on the table, I sat across from him, laptop at hand. I sat down with Danny and we discussed what it was like to grow up in a foster home. Now, something you must understand is that Danny was not a foster child, but he lived in a home which was always accumulating more children. Having to meet and entertain new children all the time, I would think, would have a drastic impact on the way Danny was raised and the certain parental aspects that arise from growing up in a foster home. It’s a brisk, Tuesday morning in the Crossroads, chilly outside, but warmer inside by the heat the bodies are releasing. Questions 1. Do you remember the first child that came and stayed with your family, when your home first started as a foster home? -“Not really. It’s been so long, ya know? To really know the answer to that question, you would have to go way back in my past,” he says with a laugh. “I have vague memories of playing with children that I knew were......

Slavery

...heartbroken I was on reading the suffering and mistreatment my people ordained back in the days of Slavery. Coming from a family that is mostly comprised of African descent individuals; it makes me sad and in utter repugnance. It's funny how life back then still influences the way my people think and approach their education, family, and general lifestyle. Slavery has definitely placed a scar on the mentality of not just the black community but of all races that have been a part of this. To me the black man went through the most because he was taken away from his land by fellow men or by the white man without having any say. The differences between the Africans and the Indians are that the Indians were brought here voluntarily; on the other hand the black man was violently brought here to be slaves. The “Black” man therefore was stripped of his family, pride, love ones and home. When one hears about slavery; the mind automatically thinks of the white man abusing the black man. There is so much more to slavery than just the inhumane acts that the African man was victim of. It was stages of torture that has the black man the way he is today. Slavery has definitely marked the black community when it comes to family life. Most children of African descended parents end up being a part of a single mother home. According to the article written by (Wilson, 2002, p.3) a census was done in Barbados which came back with a result stating that only thirty percent of mothers......

Tad O’malley: the Investment Conundrum

...Tad O’Malley: The Investment Conundrum By David Birulin The Empire Investment Group was a top-tier buy-out firm within the private equity community. Tad O’Malley, a second-year student at the Harvard Business School, accepted a position at Empire Investment Group. Ted received a call from his boss, Townsend “Sandy” Beech, the head of his four-person deal team and founding member of the firm. Sandy requested Tad, on a Friday afternoon, to review three presentations for possible buyout targets. Tad was to make a presentation at the partners’ meeting on Monday morning, recommending only one (1) investment and detailing the strengths and weaknesses of all three. The Empire Investment Group had a strong “brand name” and historically sponsored very successful business partnerships. The company was strong in “structuring deals” and had just recently added an advisory services operation as a way to expand its services internationally and provide deal flow. By 2005, Empire’s buyout unit consisted of 25 seasoned partners with a range of backgrounds that encompassed financial, consulting, and operations experience. The objective of a “leveraged buy-out” is to find companies, either domestically or internationally (or both), where Empire can utilize borrowed funds or debt to finance its acquisition. Often times a leveraged buy-out does not involve much committed capital (maybe a 70% debt to 30% equity) that will achieve high returns for Empire. Basically, Empire......

I had a job but no reliable transportation to get back and forth in. So my mom told me if I kept my grades up I could use her until I save up enough money to purchase one of my own. Well to her I was just borrowing her car to have a way to work and school. But to me I had a brand new toy and I wanted everybody to know it. That’s when it all started….
